Weekend Steam

These old Thresherman magazines are mighty brittle and I fret a bit every time I pull the stack out for one of these posts. This issue has a pretty serious tear, but it still makes a nice picture. I think the engine powering the thresher is a Case, and I wonder what has happened to the operator's platform. Case engines usually had a bunker with a water tank below and coal above. There probably was some kind of mishap that damaged the bunker, but no-one in this scene is available for comment.
